Calcite on Calcite from Daye Copper Mine

Dimension: 8.9cm x 7.1cm x 4cm

Weight: 257g

Locality: Tonglushan Mine, Daye Co., Huangshi Prefecture, Hubei Province, China


This striking and well composed specimen from the world renowned Daye Copper Mine represents one of the few top quality Calcite pieces we have seen in recent years.  Mined in March 2021 and only two pieces of this quality and saturated color were found, this is the best piece of all!  Extremely gemmy and lustrous amber yellow colored Calcite crystals totally cover a solid mound of white Dogtooth Calcite crystals.  This is for sure a museum quality piece of a rare style and vivid Calcite color showing complex growth and is definitely highly desirable.  They are like high-end jewels but it’s totally natural, what a masterpiece from the mother nature!  Comes with a high quality copper-wired display stand.
